Another stand mixer recipe. What good is that KitchenAid stand mixer that sets on your counter? Yes, it impresses your friends and family but really when was the last time you cracked it open and fired it up. Well do it tonight and make this healthy dinner rolls.
Yep really that good. Moist with great taste and tender. Not that dry whole wheat taste.
Notes: I used my cold weather rising method and noted that in the recipe. This dough is very wet so use flour on your hands and surface. I let the stand mixer do the work of kneading.This only makes 6 rolls. Double for 12 rolls and use a cake pan,
You could vary this recipe in many ways. Do all white, add some onion flakes, top with sesame seeds… Maybe a cinnamon roll variation?
Measure 2/3 cup of warm water (about 105) and add the yeast. Place butter and honey in small bowl and microwave for 20 seconds to melt butter.
Add flours and salt to stand mixer bowl mix. After yeast mixture starts to foam (about 5 minutes) add all ingredients to stand mixer. Mix on 2 with dough hook for about 8 minutes. After 2 minutes stop and scrap down sides if all dry is not mixed in.
(Cold weather option: turn on over to lowest temp and heat until that temp is reached the turn off oven.)
Heat oven to 375 and bake until golden brown. 16 to 18 minutes.
Note: Double for 12 rolls and use a 9 by 12 inch cake pan
I simplified other recipes and make it single rise for less fuss and more speed. So fire that thing up and in 80 minutes you can be eat wonderful home made honey wheat dinner rolls.
